    “Tuesday, November 2, 1920, was a day of triumph. For The first time in history, women across the united States were allowed to vote.” In the book, The Day The Women Got The Vote, the author illustrates the women’s struggle for equal rights in history by showing a significant amount of photos. With these photo, we get to understand the history of female heroes in the history who fought for liberty and helped alleviating the inequality against women. I found this book extremely inspiring and encouraging, because if it wasn’t for them, we wouldn’t have the liberty and rights we have today as a girl and a woman. Without them, the inequality problem could have been worse. Without them, we are not able to enjoy all aspect of life like the way we do today. I believe that if the whole society could work together to end the gender inequality and spread the idea of feminism, we can achieve the goal of creating the world where everybody can be what they want to be and do what they want to do. What I learned from this book is that the women’s rights movement is not about the individuals, it is about everyone, and it is important for us to step up and speak for those who cannot speak for themselves and get the rights we deserve as human. I highly recommend this book to those who believe in feminism and who are interested in the history of the women’s rights movement.
